(the wind gods, you know)
I love them, I love them, I love them. I tweaked the chart a little for the second one, and introduced a couple more refinements - a knit row at the base of the corrugated ribbing to get purl channels that look truly inlaid; a neater decrease to the top. And just in time, too - baby, it's cold outside.
The Anemoi Mittens - A decidedly different pair of mittens in an asymmetrical, non-repeating stranded colorwork pattern of windy scrolls and breathy swirls. An unusual semi-corrugated rib and a close-fitting shape ensure toasty fingers and easy movement - go ahead, class up that dirty snowball fight.
This pattern is packed with detailed technique information and tips for working, charts galore, and ridiculously detailed instructions. It even includes a blank chart for charting your own original design.
Women’s Small (Medium, Large): 7.5” (8, 8.5) in circumference around knuckles; length is adjustable.
Yarn requirements: 1 (2, 2) 50g balls fingering weight yarn (180-200yds/50g) in main color; 1 (1, 2) 50g balls in contrast color.
Skill group: This pattern is ideal for knitters already comfortable with two-color stranded knitting in the round, as well as for adventurous novices comfortable with reading charts. You will need to be able to read and follow a chart, increase and decrease in pattern, and do a tubular cast-on to complete this project.
